Serves: 12


  • 1 large egg white
  • 2 Tbsp. curry powder
  • 1½ tsp. kosher salt
  • Sugar substitute equal to 1 tsp. granulated sugar
  • ¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 3 cups unsalted mixed nuts (peanuts, almonds, and cashews)


  • Preheat oven to 300°F.
  • Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, whip the egg white until frothy. Add the curry powder, salt, sugar substitute, and cayenne pepper; whisk until evenly blended. Add the nuts and stir until evenly coated.
  • Spread the nuts in a single layer on the prepared baking sheets. Roast, uncovered, for about 20 minutes until the nuts are dry and toasted. Stir and turn the nuts at least 2 times during the roasting process. (Be very watchful during the last half of baking, as the nuts can burn quickly.) Remove the nuts from the oven and transfer them to a sheet of parchment paper to cool.
